Stephan Mathieu – Wurmloch Variationen
Imagine yourself lost, in space, with only distant specks of light visible from your "position." Suddenly, unbeknownst to you, your body crosses the threshold of possible return of a black hole. Wurmloch Variation is the soundtrack for the trip, and the theme for the event horizon is "Variation Eins." Six pieces of unsettling glitches, and the nervous appearance of tones from a piano make up this heartfelt, yet sparse, album by Stephan Mathieu. Released on Ritornell Label, a sub-label of Mille Plateaux.
